Startup repair loop - Can't repair with system restore/repair/commands

Q: Startup repair loop - Can't repair with system restore/repair/commands

Hello,

I've been unable to access my custom build computer since around 5:00 yesterday. I chose to restart my computer at around that time just because it was slowing up a little and I usually do that to help, I had not installed any updates or new programs since 2 days ago when there had been a few windows updates.

Upon returning to my computer I noticed that it had been unable to startup and had gone straight into system repair with it being 'unable to repair this computer automatically.' I rebooted several times and noticed that it was not a visible BSOD but as soon as the 'starting windows' icon began to appear it went straight into startup repair. I tried to boot into safe mode, tried to load previous good configuration and all of the other advanced recovery options (including system restore/image and many command prompts).

This is what it shows after being unable to repair automatically:

Problem signature name:Startup repair offline
Problem signature 1: 6.1.7600.16385
Problem signature 2: 6.1.7600.16385
Problem signature 3: unknown
Problem signature 4: 21200552
Problem signature 5: Autofailover
Problem signature 6: 11
Problem signature 7: Corrupt file
(then my O.S. version)
Locale ID: 1033

This diagnostic occurs every single time I run the startup repair. Also, command prompts I have tried using the WindowsRE command prompt and the one found on the 'repair your PC' option on the windows 7 installation disk are:

-All bootrec.exe ( /fixmbr /rebuildbcd /scanOs /fixboot) to crop up with the message 'completed successfully' and 'installations of windows:0'
-Chkdsks of my D: disk (where my files and windows are located now)
-/sfc /scannow, which also shows no problems either.
-moving the SAM/BOOT/Software files using a guide I found on these forums

I have sufficient anti-virus protection and must stress I didn't download any new software yesterday, however I do frequently run the registry cleaner option of CCleaner if that is of any importance.

Again, all efforts to bypass the load and boot into safe mode or with last good config all just automatically lead me into startup repair, with a seemingly infinite loop of 'could not repair this computer automatically'

If it must come to it I am willing to do a windows 7 complete reinstall if that is the only way to resolve this, but I just wanted to know if anyone has any suggestions of commands for me to try or anything like that. I see a lot of people having this 'looping system repair' issue but their's were resolved. I am not much of a tech whizz and I just want to know what the issue is, if it was by one of my fault's so I don't mess it up again and how to solve it. I have never had this issue before it was completely random and I build my PC from scratch in January.

If you need any more information please let me know.

Thanks,

I am running Windows 7 Ultimate x64 bit and my HDD is connected via SATA 6GB/S

I'm running Windows7 on a Toshiba Satellite A665-S6067
I believe I'm currently stuck in a startup repair/system restore loop, I stayed up late last night trying every trick in the book to fix it that I know of, but to no avail. I'm currently a college student and I have VERY important files that I need to get(resume for upcoming job fair, schoolwork, etc). This occured after windows was installing a critical update the previous night, I woke up to this problem.
1)Startup repairs gives me error and restarts computer
2)I cannot system restore to any restore point, doing so gives me an error saying that system restore found an unexpected error code 0x80070002.
3)I cannot boot into safe mode and run a system restore. I tried booting to safe mode and got into the startup repair
4) Last known good configuration option throws me into startup repair
5)Going into the command prompt and trying to run chkdsk tells me that Unable to run chkdsk hard drive write protected 6) I tried sfc /scannow and it gives me an error
7)Trying system image restore doesn't work because I don't have an image saved
8)I don't remember from last night, but I went into the command prompt to copy some files on my drive in an attempt to boot my windows properly but failed
I'm not sure where to go from here.. I'm willing to do a complete wipe and reinstall windows7, but I have some VERY important files I need to have for school on my computer. I'm wondering if there's any way I can g... Read more

Hello,

Today, one of my family members' computers (Windows 7, 64-bit) was infected with the System Repair (not restore as the title says - sorry) virus, which essentially ran a scan saying that her hard drive wasn't working correctly, and all of her files had been lost. A number of dialog boxes also popped up one after the other with various hard drive 'errors' and warnings.

Because she was panicking, before I had a chance to look for a solution she chose to restart her computer and it is now stuck in a 'Startup Repair' loop. I have tried starting it in the various Safe Modes, but it is met with the same loop. The 'Loading Windows Files' screen comes up followed by the 'Startup Repair' which, after a very brief scan, has the following to report:

I've tried searching the internet for a solution, but every single one I've found requires access to the desktop (which I don't have) so I'm unsure how I can post a log to better assist you.

A:Startup Repair loop following 'System Restore' infection

My apologies, but 'Startup Repair' actually says 'Windows cannot repair this computer automatically' after about 5 to 10 seconds of scanning, not that no problems were found.

On that screen, I am prompted to send information or not (like an error report), and my other options are 'view diagnostic and repair details' (see below), 'view advanced options for system recovery and support' (which prompts me to enter computer login details and select my keyboard input), and finish or cancel which restarts the computer and begin the loop again.

I'm not sure if it is normal, but the background is black as opposed to the Windows 7 blue logon background.

This is the diagnosis and repair details log:

Hi,

I am unable to start up my laptop (Windows 7 Home Premium). TOSHIBA Satellite C660-1J6
It is stuck in a loop of 'attempting to repair this computer', which is unsuccessful and restarts.
There are no restore points to use.
I have received the BSOD which disappears quickly during startup.
I am able to start up in Safe Mode - however when I get to the login screen, the mouse and keyboard do not work.

I would highly appreciate any help or advice with this.
I am happy to reinstall windows as I have everything backed up. However I am unsure how to do so as I do not have a CD.

Kind regards

A:Startup Repair- windows cannot repair; Stuck in restart loop

Firstly, a Windows 7 install disc is a dvd, not a cd.

You would have to find a working PC to download a Windows 7 Home Premium Service Pack 1 Iso File, either 32 or 64 bit, let`s assume you need 64 Bit.

After you have downloaded the iso file you have to burn it to a dvd at no faster then x4 speed. So the PC has to have a dvd burner and you`s need a blank dvd.

Everything you need is in the following links.

https://www.heidoc.net/joomla/techno...-download-tool

Free ISO Burner

Clean Install Windows 7

You can also use a usb stick to put the iso file on using Rufus. The usb stick must be at least 4 GB in size.

https://rufus.akeo.ie/

You must also have a readable key on your COA to activate windows after you install it.

You will also have to install at least your network/ethernet drivers to get online. Then get your other drivers, and run Windows Update, which will take a long time, sometimes 24 hours.

Dear all,

A little over a week ago, my system BSOD'd (too quickly for me to see the first time) and eventually after a number of restarts rebooted normally and ran fine for the next day or so. The following day, I was unable to get the machine to post, with fans spinning but not a lot else. Resetting the BIOS seemed to work, but I was then stuck at the startup repair screen, looping without success. I had a spare HDD so installed another copy of 7 Pro and managed to book ok, but after several more BSODs it looked like a hardware fault. I changed the motherboard today for a similar (same chipset) model and reconnected the original HDD, but once again I am stuck at startup repair with the following error:

My wife's PC crashed today and got into a startup repair loop. I'm hoping that I can do a repair install, but I can't figure out how to do so. Here's the details:

Her system is just a few months old. Here are the specs:
ASUS P8Z77-Mpro motherboard
Intel i5-3570K (not overclocked) - intel cooler
8GB RAM (can't remember what kind - maybe G.Skil)
Galaxy GeForce GTX 550 Ti video card
Corsair TX-850 PSU
Windows 7 Home Premium, 64-bit from a clean install on a Corsair SSD (including Program Files/Program Files (x86)
Users directory on Samsung SATA drive with other stuff that isn't installed in Program Files directories.

The problem:
Today she wanted to play Skyrim, so she ran the Skyrim Nexus Mod Manager.
It had an update. She downloaded and installed the update, the tried to run the game.
When the game launched it started Steam and tried to download updates (there is a new update to Skyrim that came out a couple of days ago), and she walked away.
When she came back it was on Startup Repair screen saying it could not repair the problem. The Error text is:

All of a sudden, my computer crashes every time when starting up the computer. When it gets to the "Windows" screen with the small moving dots that form the windows logo, it crashes just as they start their animation.

I've tried using Startup Repair, as well as command line repair (possibly the same thing?), but they are telling me that they aren't finding anything wrong. Also reverting to a previous state results in an error and I can't do a system restore because I have no system restore points. I was able to backup all of my most important files, thanks to that excellent guide on here which tells you how to use the "load driver" window to do it. So, I'm confident that my hard-drive is still mostly functional, since searching through it went fine, with no corrupt files or anything noticed. At first I thought the problem was something other than my hard-drive/installation, so I put my hard-drive into another computer (which was working fine) and experienced the same problem.

I read about the "repair install" option and got really excited that this might fix my problem. However, I read that you can only do it while logged in (which, again, I cannot do) and this was confirmed when I tried to do it anyway. This sounds like the perfect option for me, but I can't get the computer to let me log in, whether in safe mode or not.

Does anyone have any other ideas about what I can do? I'd really like to avoid doing a fresh install of Windows 7, if at al... Read more

I have a Packard Bell easynote (TM98-GN-030UK), and have had it since Christmas.

On Wednesday, it failed to startup, flashing a quick blue screen and then immediately rebooting. Therefore I cannot get information from the blue screen.
The startup repair option goes to a default blue screen with green nature-y bits. It loads no options, even if I leave it for an hour.

I have tried the system repair disk. It goes to the same background, asks for my language/keyboard settings, and then when I click 'next' again does nothing.

So, I cannot access any kind of repair or restore options as neither does anything beyond show me the default background.
Thanks,

I took delivery of a new (and expensive!) PC in January but last week it started giving me constant and varied errors.

The isssues range from Blue screen, black screen, failing to load windows, startup repair needed often, system restore needed often, and when it does load windows there are various error messages.
System info:
Intel Core i5 2500K
Win 7 Home Premium 64bit
Original OS installed on the system, an OEM version
PC just a few weeks old

Any help and guidance is much appreciated...

A:BSOD, Startup Repair, System Repair and other errors on nearlly new PC

These crashes were caused by memory corruption/exception (probably a driver).
Please run these two tests to verify your memory and find which driver is causing the problem.

If you are overclocking anything reset to default before running these tests.
In other words STOP!!!

If you have Raid > update its Driver.
Memtest.

*Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

*Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.

Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

Any errors are indicative of a memory problem.

If a known good stick fails in a motherboard slot it is probably the slot.

Using Driver Verifier is an iffy proposition. Most times it'll crash and it'll tell you what the driver is. But sometimes it'll crash and won't tell you the driver. Other times it'll crash before you can log in to Windows. If you can't get to Safe Mode, then you'll have to resort to offline editing of the registry to disable Driver Verifier.

So, I'd suggest that you first backup your stuff and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you c... Read more

My desktop started acting up yesterday. Now starts, goes directly to black screen saying windows in loading data then to the start up repair tool. Here it says it cannot fix the issue and gives option to shut down, restart or go to further repair options. After running a SFC scan and that saying it fixed some issues the computer should be restarted all options but the repair tool disappeared from the list (ie the option to run a memory check, open command prompt or set the computer back to an earlier version). Starting in last good configuration was one of the first things I did but it didn't fix the issue and starting in safe mode does nothing to change this.

Any suggestions greatly appreciated!

I am using my cellphone because my computer is stuck in startup repair mode. I have windows vista.I can choose repair or normal, both run start up repair. It always fails after multiple attempts. I chose advanced options after failures and tried to do a hard drive restore to several different dates. It always says its successful and restarts, but goes into startup repair again every time. I have called ms tech support, and not surprisingly my problem requires advanced help that costs money. They did have me restart and push f8 to launch safe mode, but it ended up in startup repair also. I have agreed to pay them but set up an appt for next tues. They said i can cancel and get my money back if i want. They said my problem is fixable and my photos and files will be there. I just feel like i may have a better option and I'm hoping this website is it. I can restart my computer and give the details if its needed. I am desperately seeking your help and would definitely donate if you can fix my computer and i dont have to pay ms. I am not a computer idiot, but definitely NO expert.

Hi, my friend recently got a new Dell Latitude E6420 laptop and he asked me to download some essential for him such as Malwarebytes, CCleaner, and antivirus program. He only had it for one day and there seems to be a serious problem. Upon running a quick scan with Malwarebytes, I found two trojan viruses. I then downloaded Avast antivirus and ran a quick scan and found another virus. I can't remember what it is. Happened all to quickly. I also noticed that when I was on google searching for stuff it would redirect me to some fake bogus site of what I would be searching for. Avast then popped up with a screen saying it blocked a virus and needed to reboot. So I rebooted my friends laptop and I can't seem to reach the login screen. It keeps going to a Startup Repair screen and basically doesn't accomplish anything. It says Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically and click finish to exit. I can't boot into safe mode either. f8 doesn't do nothing at all. f5 brings me to the boot manager, but there isn't any option for safe mode. I ran diagnostics and nothing happened. It pretty much loops into that Startup Repair screen everytime I shut down or restart. I can't login to the laptop. Any help would be appreciated it. Thanks!

A:System Restore Crashed, Now I'm In Endless Auto Repair Loop

Because Windows 10 uses a hybrid shutdown the procedure I am outlining may not be able to mount the drive so you can access your data. If you use a Windows Live account to login to windows the data may be encrypted.
 
On another computer download Fatdog64. This is a linux distro that will boot and hopefully recover you data to an external hard drive. 
 
Here is the iso file.  Fatdog64-702.iso
 
Once downloaded you can burn the iso to a CD or DVD by right clicking the iso file and selecting Burn Disk Image. You may need to access your BIOS/UEFI to make your optical drive the first boot device. Depending on the make and model of the computer you can press a key at boot to open a boot menu where you can select your boot device.
 
At the Fatdog Desktop you will see your hard drive partitions listed as sda1....sda2... sda3 etc depending on the number of partitions on the disk. For a Windows 10 computer your files may be on sda3. Click once on a sda partition. If the partition can mount a File Manage window will open. Clicking once on a folder will open it. If you do not see your files then close the file manager and select another sdaX partition.  If you are able to see your files then post back and I will give instructions on copying files to a USB flash drive or USB external drive. This will at least get your important data back if the partitions can mount. Hopefully they will.

Hi
My Toshiba laptop/Windows 8.1 installed a VLC Media player & Malware bytes today. I was instructed to Restart as 'drivers not working properly' & since then have been on the Automatic Repair loop. It says it cannot fix it - log file: C:\WINDOWS\System32\Logfiles\Srt\SrtTrail.txt, & I tried a few System Restore points but that just says -

System Restore could not access a file. This is probably because an anti-virus program is running on the computer . Temporarily disable your antivirus program and retry System Restore. You can try System Restore again If you continue to see this error, you can try an advanced recovery method.

Thing is I can't get into Windows or my laptop to disable the antivirus program. I'm not very techy so could someone please help me to get back into Windows.

I don't have any CD or DVD & no product key as the disc has been misplaced.

Hello, I recently got hit by an aggressive trojan that started with disabling my sound, and crippling my internet connection to finally causing my windows XP to stop booting correctly. It would just freeze moments after the desktop loaded, becoming completely unresponsive.

I tried to do an OS repair but that too failed. Repair was unusually slow then ground to a halt at the 29 minute mark (Performing Configuration Stage) with some sort of +COM failure (sorry forgot to write down the exact details). Repair setup is not able to go beyond that point, so I restart the process. Same thing happens, repair gets stuck at the same point, and now I can't boot up XP at all because it goes straight into repair.

Is there anything I can do to save this installation? A reformat and reconfiguration of my PC takes days to do and I'm short on time.

A:XP repair has failed and computer is stuck in a reboot-repair loop

I doubt there is anything you can do at this point to avoid a full wipe and reinstall. You can run off a live linux version if you need to get work done before you get around to actually reinstalling XP and configuring your computer, but your XP applications will obviously not run in such a setup.

Ok so I got some messed up virus a couple of days ago. It was antivirus security pro i believe. I couldnt get rid of it in time and tried starting my computer in safe mode but it didnt work. It just tried to restore my computer with entire hd and two partitions. I didn't want to do that since I figured I could use norton in safe mode and get rid of the virus. So i kept shutting it off and retrying safe mode but it kept going to that. Now I wish it would do that. Instead my laptop goes to startup repair, which it says is incompatible with my system.
 
It's an ASUS laptop that's like 4-5 years old and I'm running windows 7 32 bit.
 
I'm getting a windows 7 install disc made from another computer and hopefully that will work but I really don't know what else to do. I think my laptop started off as windows XP but I don't remember.
 
All I have is system recovery options and none of them can do anything except for the command prompt.
 
Any help would be really appreciated!!

Last night i closed my laptop without shutting it down. I woke up this morning and turned it on and it went to the system repair screen and ran through that. It says there are problems but they are not automatically repairable. I then tried to do the system restore to an earlier point in time and had one option for a couple days ago. I ran through that but it says there is an error and when i expand to see the error one of the things listed is no OS installed.

I have windows 7 64bit.

Does anyone here have any idea what might be the problem. I am very confused as to why it would say i dont have an OS installed but it is running through the system start up repair as well as listing a date that i could restore it back to.

I would really appreciate any input on this as i have a lot of data on that hard drive and i am really hoping its recoverable and not totally hosed.

I have not tried installing the hard drive into a new computer yet. I will try that a little later.

Once again, i appreciate any and all suggestions and help. Thanks.

Hello.

I recently downloaded a damaged file, which caused my computer (not this one) to be unable to start up normally.

The computer now boots up in Startup repair, which is unable to repair my computer "automatically" and when I then click "View advanced options for system recovery and support" and go to the "System restore" tab and choose a Date and time for the restoration, it tells me that "There is not enough free space to restore the disk". I seem to have no options to try and sort out the missing space on the harddisk, which should be unnecessary because I am pretty sure there is still alot of disk space on the C: harddrive.
I dont know if this is a problem you have to solve through the Command prompt..?

Any help appreciated.

When I started the laptop today I got a window titled "Startup Repair" with a message "Your computer was unable to start". Then another window wanting to run system restore. I am running vista on an HP G60-230US notebook pc. I am afraid this may be a malware program and have not run the restore. I will shutdown the laptop until further instructions from this forum, I am making this post from a tablet.
The last program installed on the laptop was Turbo Tax, and i have run the computer and the program several times without issues.

A few months ago I had a problem with Internet Security 2012 malware. I believe I sucessfully removed it following the instructions on the malware removal page. The pc has run normally since then with the exception of an error message for windows defender everytime it boots up.

Any help will be greatly apreciated. Thanks.

Switch on your computer and keep pressing F8 on the HP Boot Logo.
Then from the advanced boot options, select Last Known Good Configuration and press Enter.

If this doesn't work, boot into safe mode with command prompt. Then in the command prompt, type rstrui.exe and press Enter. This will launch System Restore. Try restoring your system to an earlier date when it was working fine.

Hello everyone. I'm a big fan of this incredible website but I haven't actually posted here ... until now. Hope someone has some advice for me.

My HP laptop running Vista somehow picked up something nasty. Simple scans were not fixing it, so I figured I'd try to do a System Restore back to a point before I picked it up.

Short story is the Restore failed ... and now I can't get Windows to load even in safe mode.

Here's what I was able to copy manually from the error screen:

Hi all,

Self-built and Posted first computer, as below, in July 2013. Seemed fine & fast for a few weeks.
Three weeks ago, for no obvious reason, Windows 7 'stuck' on the 'Welcome' screen. I painstakingly reinstalled from scratch. OK for a couple of days...then repeat of problem.
So then I used Windows 7 disk's 'Startup Repair' following F8 boot up; successful but it asked me to reinstall MalwareBytes Anti Malware (which I did from backup disk).
Ever since then I have had to startup the computer every time - either using Startup Repair and F8 boot, or - just as much - System Restore from F8 boot up. (As I'm always asked to restore MBAM after an eventual start, I'm just mentioning that - is that coincidental or part of the problem?)

Once the computer's has started up it's fine. But I hate turning it off! I've never overclocked the computer, btw. And I've never had a virus as far as I know.

So my computer was doing fine. It started acting a little slow, so I decided to shut it down and give it a rest. When I turned it on, this is what came up...

"Startup repair cannot repair this computer automatically"

Below it said, Send information about this problem, so I clicked that. I closed that window and at the bottom there was a link that said View advanced options for systems recovery. I clicked that came 6 links; Startup repair, which was thing I'd already tried, System Restore, System Image Recovery, Windows Memory Diagnostic, Command Promp and Toshiba recovery wand. I've already tried the Restore and Memory Diagnostic a bunch of times, but the Restore keeps saying that it failed due to error and the Memory thing isn't doing anything. The image recovery won't work and the command prompt does nothing and I'm pretty sure that if I click The Toshiba thing it will erase everything on my computer. I have absolutely no idea of what wouldve caused this. The only thing I could think of is saving some Unicode characters onto a 2010 Microsoft Word Document. But I doubt that's what did it. Anyways, please tell me any suggestions that you might have. I've restarted it a bunch of times and it hasn't done anything. Sorry for the lack of commas and stuff, I had to type this whole thing up on my iPod touch.

A:Not starting, Startup repair, System Restore other repairs not working

Hello HalesXD and welcome to Seven Forums.

Since this problem just recently started you could possibly restore your computer to an earlier date/time using a restore point. You might have to access Safe Mode through Advanced Boot Options.

Safe Mode

System Restore

Or you might have damaged/corrupted system files. Run a System File Checker scan from an elevated command prompt (option two, this tutorial.) If problems are found run the scan 3 times rebooting in between each scan.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

It also wouldn't hurt to run a full scan with your antivirus/antispyware of choice. You could also run a couple of free on-demand scanners like Malwarebytes, HitmanPro, Superantispyware, etc because no antimalware product is 100% effective 100% of the time. (If there was such a thing we'd all be using it and everyone else would be out of business.)

Hello everyone,

I am not sure which category this belongs to as it broaches many areas, but I felt this was the closest (other than general)

In short my computer refuses to start win 7, it tries to repair it, but fails. I have tried system restore point and restore to previous known working state but neither works. The computer will start in safe mode though.

Some background:
This started when my AVG virus software started telling me it could not update so I uninstalled it (or rather tried to update it by downloading a new version of it and trying to install it over the old, but this had some problems so I uninstalled it). I rebooted after the uninstall and the cycle above started.

At this point time I tried restoring the system to the point before I tried the "install new version over the old" and the restore was successful but the problem persisted. After this though, no restore point will work anymore, I just get

"unspecified error occurred during system restore 0x8000ffff"

Apparently the first restore really did work as when I started in safe mode, the AVG was there and I uninstalled it hoping it would help, but no.

I've tried running the Repair Computer option from win7 disk, but it wont work. I can not even try to reinstall win7 at the moment because I get this when trying to select any partition:

windows 7 windows cannot be installed to this disk the selected disk has an mbr partition table gpt

A:system restore error-(0xc0000022),startup repair says no problem

Windows 7 doesn't need third party tune up tools or "optimizers". They cause more problems than they solve.

Did you try running the system file checker scan 3 times as suggested? And did you reboot the computer immediately after running each of the 3 scans? You could also try running the SFC at boot to see if that makes a difference.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

If you're still having problems with Windows Explorer crashing, you might consider doing a repair install. It will try to repair Windows 7 while preserving your user accounts, data, programs, system drivers, etc. The repair install take about an hour to run. When finished you'll have to reinstall Windows Updates which could take another hour or more.

Repair Install

You could also use this opportunity to do a clean install and get a superior performng system without all the factory bloatware.

At one point I had a error message (after a failed startup repair) that C:\windows\system32\drivers\rdyboost.sys is corrupt.

I got the Windows 7 Home Premium Upgrade disk from my friend and booted from the DVD drive and ran startup repair....it says it cant find anything wrong!!! Still wont complete sys restore (tried several points) when booted from DVD or safe mode.

when i boot from the HD same startup repair failure each time.

I didnt back up any files and dont have a external drive to back up to. I guess I will have to go buy one...back up the HD after booting from AVG rescue cd, then do a clean install. (is that possible from a vista upgrade using upgrade disk?)

or does anybody have a suggestion? I might try a upgrade repair install?? from the DVD?

Windows failed to start, startup repair cannot repair this computer, safe mode cannot load, chkdsk freezes, sfc scan cannot perform the requested operation

Hi, I cannot start my Windows 7 at all. With power on, the system tries to load up but: ' windows failed to start.A recent hardware or software change might be the cause'. Trying to open safe mode or last good configuration doesn't work, it goes automatically to startup repair but after about an hour trying it says ' Windows 7 Startup Repair Cannot Repair This Computer ' (tried a few times). After another reboot with a windows 7 repair disk in the drive I managed to open the recovery manager from the DVD instead of the HDD and tried all the options - system recovery does not work, i have no previous images of the system, I ran a scan on the memory - it was all clear but still windows not starting. Then I did CHKDSK and it froze at 11% on stage 4 of 5, that happened a couple of times so I decided to run an sfc scannow but another error: 'Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation'. So I'm totally stuck and don't know where to go next, I've got no windows installation disk, only repair disk. Any ideas would be much appreciated!

Firstly, thanks for reading.

My PC runs Windows 7 x64. I built it myself about a year ago for gaming.

Occasionally running games I would BSOD and it would suck. I'd update all my drivers or try some game-specific fix and usually if I didn't fix it, I would just start playing something else until I remembered it and by then, some Windows update or my own tweaking or just divine providence would have stopped the bluescreens. A few games, like GTA IV, Bioshock Infinite and Spec Ops: The Line remain unplayable for me, as they constantly bluescreen no matter my alterations or updates, but that's another story.

My problem is with Startup Repair. I was playing Max Payne 3 last night, all was well, then BSOD. To note, I never actually see the blue screen, the video cuts and the audio stutters for a moment, then the computer restarts. But in the .dmp files they're always reported as BSODs. Anyway, I restart and do some other stuff, then turn it off for the night. Today, I turn the PC on, and it prompts me to Start Windows Normally or launch Startup Repair. I chose to repair, thinking it was probably time I let Windows have a shot at it for once.

Well, I'm sitting a feet away and watching the screen right now, and it's going through the third consecutive automatic repair. In the past few hours I've run memory diagnostic, gone through the Startup Repair Infinite Loop Recovery thread with the MD mybackup stuff, attempted chkdsk (can't due to a lack of write privileges, even...

Hi,

I have a problem with my HP Pavilion MS228UK. When I power it on, it runs Startup Repair and then gives me the mesage 'Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically'. In the details all the tests were completed successfully with error codes '0x0' except the last one which gave 'error code 0x490' with the message 'No OS files found on disc'. I ran the memory diagnostic tool which found no faults. I have tried to boot system recovery using F11 but that is not working either.

Hi All,

Looking for some advice. I had a sudden BSOD earlier and upon restarting my PC it came up with Startup Repair, only to have it fail to repair the issue. I have been following this thread which seems to have stemmed from the same issue. I too am running Avast, so I suspect that may be the problem.

I have been following the steps in that thread and have reached the point of removing Avast keys in Regedit. I previously ran checks and also attempted to repair from the Win7 OS CD as was suggested in that thread.

I think that following the steps to remove Avast files may be the solution to my issue - however, as I am aware that Regedit can be dangerous to mess around with I wanted to check in and make sure I am following the steps correctly.

System info: Self-built PC, running Windows 7 on a Crucial M4 SSD, with two WD Caviar Black HDDs as storage drives.
CPU: Intel i5-2500k (not OCd)
GPU: EVGA nVidia 970 FTW
RAM: 4x4GB

It appears to have re-mapped my drives, my SSD is C: normally while my HDDs are E: and F:, but the system is currently reading C: as the Windows reserved partition of the SSD, the rest of that drive as F:, and the HDDs as D: and E: instead. This is in line with the user (Lethorio) in the earlier thread, however.

So, where I'm at now. I am around posts #65-70 in that same thread and have found avast keys. Here are the keys in the first folder which appeared in the search results:

I just finished reading this thread http://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f217/cannot-boot-windows-startup-repair-cannot-repair-this-computer-automatically-663898.html as I'm having the same issue. Here's a brief history.

My computer was built by me and has been fine up until a few days ago after I removed some USB cables for devices that I then hooked up to another PC I have and reconfigured some USB devices as a powered hub I was using would not let them be recognized by Windows. When I opened the Attached Devices window to see if my devices were now recognized it took forever to open with the blue bar at the top never getting to the end. I Googled the problem and found that Bluetooth was may be causing the issues and to disable it. That didn't fix the issue so I tried other recommended fixes such as disabling printspool -- none worked.
I then started having the Cannot Boot problems so I let Windows try and fix it which it could not. I tried to let it restore from a previous good point but that failed and I would click Send Report and then it would shut down. This kept happening for several days until I came across the aforementioned thread here on the forum.
Last night I turned off the power and went to bed. This morning I switched on the PC and let it boot up. Lo and behold WIN7 started right up no problems -- the Attached devices window opened right up as well. Then I saw that it was loading drivers for 3 attached devices -- all USB devices and one r...

Hi, everyone.

Today, after restarting my computer, I was faced with the Startup Repair tool, unable to boot Windows 7.
A couple hours later, after running startup tool a total of 29 times I have been unable to solve the problem.

I have also:

Tried booting in safe mode[didn't work]
Tried last known good config[didn't work]

Based on some advice I read elsewhere, I also ran chkdsk /r/f c: . It completed successfully.

Even just knowing how I can extract my files so that I can re-install windows would be a big help.

A:computer won't start, startup repair can't repair os version mismatch,

Hi and welcome to TSF this is about your error code
Bug Check 0x74: BAD_SYSTEM_CONFIG_INFO
The BAD_SYSTEM_CONFIG_INFO bug check has a value of 0x00000074. This bug check indicates that there is an error in the registry.

Parameters
The following parameters appear on the blue screen.

Parameter Description
1 Reserved
2 Reserved
3 Reserved
4 The NT status code (if it is available)


Cause
The BAD_SYSTEM_CONFIG_INFO bug check occurs if the SYSTEM hive is corrupt. However, this corruption is unlikely, because the boot loader, known as NT Loader (NTLDR) in versions of Windows prior to Vista, checks a hive for corruption when it loads the hive.

This bug check can also occur if some critical registry keys and values are missing. Thee keys and values might be missing if a user manually edited the registry.

Resolving the Problem
Try restarting the computer by selecting "last known good configuration" in the boot options.

If the restart does not fix the problem, the registry damage is too extensive. You must reinstall the OS or use the Emergency Repair Disk (ERD) that you previously created by using the Windows Backup tool.

Hello. I've had problem with my friend's laptop (OS - Windows 7 Ultimate). It won't log on to it's fullscreen mode. When I open it, I'm always stuck at Startup Repair error cycle.

Here's what happened: I installed Glary Utilities and used it to uninstall the Adobe CS3 Bundle. Then I installed the CS4 Bundle. After that, I used Glary Utilities again to clean the registry, cookies, missing shortcuts, etc. Then I used its Registry Optimizer feature..after analyzing the system, it said that the computer needed to restart to complete the process. So I restarted it. And that's where I'm left at. I can't open the laptop anymore, I can't even run it on Safe Mode - it's not available. The only available options I will tell below. My theory on this problem is that maybe I or the Glary program have deleted system files that are essential for Windows startup.

Note: I uploaded: a video of what is happening to my friend's laptop during startup; .txt files of the errors; a picture of the ble screen; and a copy this post in a word document (ony, it's not translated into English but the dialog boxes are in English).

A:Windows unable to start - Startup Repair and System Restore won't work

Similar problems when trying to restore a system image from a portable HD. I used a bootable USB stick with the Win7 installation files on it and then tried to select a system image from the portable HD. After selecting the image and advancing to the next screen all of the selections would be grayed out and would not let me restore the image. I tried selecting another image from a backup partition on the computers HD and had the same problem. The fix was to repeat the procedure booting from the installation DVD instead of the bootable USB. I am not sure why the DVD worked when the bootable USB failed but it saved me a reinstall. This is an old post but I thought I would share my findings just in case someone has the same problem in the future.

Hi, I would really appreciate some advice before I go and get professional paid services. This is my business computer and I have important stock control and accountancy programs installed on it, loosing which would cause me big troubles.

Nevertheless, I was stupid enough to play around with it and try to install Magix movie edit pro 11 plus, original genuine program I bought some time ago. I thought it should be ok since it worked perfectly on my old computer. It didn't install correctly. I had to abrupt installation because everything hooked up. I tried to uninstall it, but it wouldn't allow me. Then I used Revo uninstaller pro which claimed to remove incomplete installations. I did install some other programs but I don't think they could have caused a problem.

After few days my computer won't start. It boots up to the windows logo and then freezes on a black screen with a white arrow.
I ran Start up Repair which didn't fix the problem. I also tried to do system recovery and to restore computer to the earlier point of time. For some reason I only got like 3 earlier points. I thought Windows it backing up computer regularly by default.

Hello and thank you in advance for the help provided. I have been working on a Dell N5010 with 4GB Ram and 1TB HDD.
 
The unit would only boot into Safe Mode, however after running a few different virus scans (and a few maintenance tasks) the machine no longer boots into safe mode. I'm not positive if the virus scans are what caused this or (attempting) to fix a few other things like permissions. It could have been after an update, however I am not sure.
 
The BSOD is: 0XF4
 
I checked the HDD and the RAM for errors. (Seatools and memtest86) Everything was fine that way.
 
Startup repair states it cannot fix the problem.
 
When I try system restore it says: "0x80071A91 An unspecified error occured during system restore."
 
I tried sfc /scannow and it states that a System Repair is pending which is required to complete.
 
When using the scannow with /offbootdir and /offwindir it states that it found errors but was unable to fix some of them. Details included in cbs.log
The CBS log does not contain updated information, the last date recorded was 2 weeks ago. I renamed the CBS log in hopes of it created a new one, however it does not create a new log.
 
I tried:

Gateway DX4720-03, Windows 7 HP 64-bit.

Living is south FL can be a bitch when the rains come as there often is a ton of accompanying lightening that plays havoc with the electrical system, even though I have surge protectors inside and outside the house. We just had some very heavy rains with lightening and my computer shut down several times, but I could restart it each time...except for the last time when Windows wouldn't startup. At that point, Start Up Repair came into play. Although I routinely backup on an external drive, of course I never did it this month-DUH!

Results from SUR were error free (error code=0x0) on all the parameters tested, however there were the following error codes reported:

"Unspecified change to the system configuration might have caused the problem."

Repair Action: System Restore
Failed: 0x1f

Repair Action: System Files
Failed: x490

There were more options to select for a recovery task, but I didn't try them as they didn't seem to be as salient as the two above..

As System Repair and System Restore failed, please advise what i should next do.

A:Windows won't startup, System Repair and System Restore failed.

What's the date of the most recent backup that you have?

Try chkdsk c: /r /x (/x forces dismount of the drive).

If the chkdsk scan runs but does not fix the issue, then please go back to the Command Prompt and enter sfc /scannow. Reboot once finished to see if it has fixed your issue.

  Hi, just recently I installed Kaspersky total security 2016 anti-virus software, the following day I was unable to bootup.
I could only get has far has ' startup repair , after a short scan I received the error message, ' startup repair cannot repair this computer automatically '
And gave me two options, - send information about this problem ( recommended )  & don't send, but I was unable to select ( mouse did not function )
So I realised that I needed to erase my ' c ' drive and reinstall windows7 , fortunately I have backup.
But the problem is, I don't know how to access 'c ' drive to erase and reinstall win7

So ( not being very technical ) I contacted Kaspersky technical support, for assistance.
They emailed me the download for their rescue disc, and instructions of how to run the disc, so I copied it to disc and usb stick.
Using the rescue disk, I am able to copy my backup files on 'c '  
But I cannot see an option with the rescue disc for wiping the ' c ' drive clean and reinstalling win7?
Have since asked Kaspersky support, replied but not answered.
Can anyone assist please

Fooling around on my laptop ( Acer Aspire 5920 ) last night, set it down for a few minutes while I went to the kitchen and came back to it frozen.

Had to force it to reboot by holding the power button, and when it rebooted it took me to the 'Startup Repair' screen, and then tells me after a few minutes of looking busy that 'Windows Cannot Repair this computer automatically.' I've made 17 repair attempts so far. Apparently my last successful boot time was in 2008.. which is a lie, aha.

I would very much like to save a few files from the computer if it's going to need a complete format, there's a good couple of years worth of writing and artwork that I'd be heartbroken to lose.

Any help is greatly, greatly appreciated.

I've also run Windows Memory Diagnostics Tool under someone's recommendation but it doesn't seem to have detected any problems.

I've purchased a recovery .iso from neosmart, but it refuses to boot from USB saying 'Disk Error, press any key to restart', and it ignores me trying to tell it to boot from CD. I don't have any recovery software that's been provided with my laptop, it's just disappeared into the ether if I ever had any.

Well last week Tuesday my power supply blew on my work PC when I turned it on.  New power supply finally came in yesterday.  I was out but our office tech installed the new Power supply and booted the PC - said it booted OK, however no mouse (I had un-plugged the logitech wireless USB mouse receiver to use with another computer), no biggee.
 
There may have been Windows updates before on left on the 4th - I don't recall
 
Turned on the PC this morning and plugged in the USB Mouse receiver and BSOD.
 
Restarted the PC and Startup Repair option came up - ran the Startup Repair and as usual (my experience), it was unsuccessful in detecting any problems.
 
Tried another boot, same issue - BSOD - System "Stopped to prevent Damage ..."
 
Re-booted and did F8 to try Last Known Good - no luck.
 
Tried System recovery with Windows Install disk, no restore point found :-(
 
At this point I've tried every Non-Destructive recovery option that is available with no success.  Looking at the log files, there are no *.log files in the \Windows directory showing today's date - only .log files are from yesterday.

I started my PC yesterday, and it goes straight to startup repair which fails to fix it every time.
It starts up normally with the HP logo but then it says "Windows is loading files" and goes to startup repair.
I don't have the windows 7 CD and I dont have a restore point to go back to... I tried booting windows 7 from a usb stick but it just went to the startup repair again tho (maybe i didnt do it right, used rufus on a windows 7 iso then simply plugged it in on my pc)
Couldn't get to advanced boot options even while mashing the F8 key nonstop since I turned the computer on. The only thing that seems somehow useful is the command prompt, that for some reason using X:\windows\system32> instead of the usual C.
I'm really lost at that point and any help would be great

I am pretty sure that a virus cause this, right before my computer shut down on it's own my anti virus popped up and said that a Trojan was found but I didn't have to do anything. Then the computer shut down and when it restartrd started to load files and then go into startup repair, only it couldn't fix it. I tried a restore, but again it said that the startup files wern't there. I just quickly scanned the diagnostic details and noticed something that said "boot critical file C:\CI.dll is corrupt".

I am so worried I won't be able to fix this and will lose everything! Any help is so greatly appreciated!!

I am in major crisis mode because my laptop is stuck in startup mode and can't repair itself. I've tried a few command tricks but most of them require safe mode, which I can't access at all. Also, many threads have mentioned reinstalling windows 7, which would be fine if my disk drive hadn't burnt out recently. I am terrified of losing all my files so I don't want to toy around with anything. Thoughts?

A:Startup Repair on laptop cannot repair computer automatically.

Welcome DelaneyNicole.

Sounds like a shame that you do not have a backup of your files.

Some things you could try:
> Try accessing windows repair from boot (press F8 and select the recovery option),
> Borrow a disc drive from another system (maybe a friends?),
> Use a bootable USB drive with say some version of Linux on it to access your files.

Do you know what happens to cause this problem?

Hello. I am having a continuous issue with my computer. I apologize in advance for being an amateur at computer repair so please bear with me if I need to better understand some terminology.

My computer is continuously crashing. It reboots itself or turns itself off. I don't always see the BSOD when it shows up but I imagine it flickers every time it crashes. One time, I saw it, and it said "BAD POOL CALLER."

Every time it crashes I do the recommended startup repair just to get it to work again. It always tells me that Startup Repair cannot fix this computer and then it reboots and everything works again for awhile. I thought everything was fine and dandy a couple weeks ago and now it is starting all over again. Please help! Thank you

Now when it boots up , it goes into startup repair but i get the message
''Startup repair - windows cannot repair this computer automatically''

then i have to send or don't send an error report
then i get 6 options , i cant remember them off top of my head.

I have Windows 7 Professional
but i've long lost the disc, apparently system restore doesn't work either it always fails for some reason.
p.s i ran checkdisk and that didn't find anything wrong, although there clearly is.
( upon boot up now if i press F8 i get the option of 3 startups, now i'm only guessing but 1 and 2 are a jumble of numbers and letters and 3 is normal startup i think . only option 2 works and i boot normally. if i don't press F8 though i get all that malarky above )

What else could it be ?
How do i fix this ?

You might be better off doing a clean install. You won't need to enter the key as its already been associated with your computer.

Backup any files you want to keep first.

I am not certain but it may take the install files from the recovery partition (perhaps someone can confirm this), I know this worked with a recent HP job I did.

Hello,

I have an HP DV6-2150us laptop about 1.5 yrs old. It runs Win 7 64-bit. All of a sudden, it won't boot up.

I don't have any flash drives or external hardware devices connected, but I did recently upgrade Norton 360 to a newer version, and also installed some software updates - don't remember exactly which ones - might have been Windows updates, Flash, Java, etc. But it was acting funny before those updates too.

When booting up, it goes straight into Startup Repair. After no more than a few minutes, it says Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically. Then it launches the HP Recovery Manager.

Here's the error message I get from Startup Repair:

Time to make a backup of your important documents and pictures.

Go here to download Ubuntu 10.04 ( There is a newer version, but I am going by my existing setup, so follow along and choose 10.04 ) http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/releases/10.04/ Save the iso file.

Then download ImgBurn from here: http://www.imgburn.com/index.php?act=download

Install ImgBurn and run it.

Choose "Write Image to Disc"

At the top of the Imgburn window, where it says "Source" click on the folder with maginfying glass icon; Then navigate to where you saved the ISO file.

Then click on the bottom area of the window depicting hd write to CD.

That should create the CD.

Now you want to boot with the CD on your PC. Check your BIOS so that it chooses to boot using the CD first. You are looking for the Boot menu, boot priority, or something along that line.

Once you boot into Ubuntu, pull down the Places pull down menu. Choose the ## GB Filesystem. That would be your hard drive. You will be able to see all folders in your drive. Now copy off the files you want to a USB memory stick.

I was just sitting at home after band practice one day and went to go watch YouTube, like what any normal 17 year old does after a busy day.

A:Startup repair cannot repair this computer automatically

1. Welcome to Tech Support Guy

2. I realise you have said
This is a HP xw4400 Workstation WXPClick to expand...

and posted in the XP forum

But is the OS XP or Windows 7
If it is 7 is Service Pack 1 installed
3. I realise you say do not pay attention to he dates and times - the dates being 2007
but you also say the tests were done a few hours ago, so can we have the results from those tests of a few hours ago
4. Does the computer load windows and if so has a chkdsk /f been run on the system drive, as Seatools can check the disc for its integrity but not for the file system of windows
If not boot to F8 and then repair your computer
then cmd prompt and run a chkdsk /f from there

I would go into safe mode...uninstall the optical drive...reboot.

Is the above the software you refer to?  What was the exact error message you received...which leads you state that your optical drive reg files are damaged?  Did you consider the possibility that the software installed is the problem?

Good afternoon.

My system died and a repair shop said the mobo was dead. I purchased a new barebones kit. I am using the video card and hard drive from the old PC in the new kit. Ram, mobo, and CPU are new. I hooked it all up and it would not boot. It asked me to do a system repair. Unfortunately when I got this I lost the ability to use my mouse and keyboard. After some searching I found a setting in BIOS that I enabled to allow the computer to recognize legacy keyboards and mice. I thought I was brilliant and I would be up and running soon. After 3 attempts at repair it now says it can't do it and asks me to send the info to Microsoft. I have tried system restore with all the dates available but upon reboot it kicks me back to the recovery option again. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Do you know which driver you installed that is preventing Repair?

Did you allow Startup Repair to use System Restore if it asked, since that should have overcome the bad driver if it was recently installed.

Boot the Win7 DVD Repair console or Repair CD, accept any offered Repair, then if it doesn't start boot back in to Recovery Tools list to run Startup Repair again, accept System Restore. If it still doesn't work, run System Restore from the Recovery Tools list.

I have read other threads with this happening and nothing has worked for me. I can boot in safe mode, with networking and with command prompt. Chkdsk /r or /f does not work, it freezes half way through the process and does not proceed. Same for sfc /scannow. I have a flash drive and was able to download all necessary drivers from acer and install them but it still will not boot. I have tried system restore and it still will not boot. It was a 2nd hand PC and I do not have a disk to reload OS. Please help, any suggestions would be appreciated.

This states that there's a problem with your registry - it could either be a corruption, or it could be malware.

The "fix" is to use the System Restore feature in Startup Repair to set your computer to a date prior to these problems occurring. If that doesn't work, then try the free, bootable diagnostics at this link: Hardware Diags

Hello everyone.

Hi,

I have a HP G62-B18SA laptop, which is just over a year old, running Windows 7 ultimate 32-bit.

Recently, my laptop has been overheating. It's done this a few times, where the powers shuts off, and then I get a message saying the core temperature reached a critical level when I try to start up again. This happened yesterday, and I could feel that the laptop was hot, but rebooted it without thinking...then when I realised I should probably let it cool down, I turned it off as it was starting up.

When I tried to turn it on this morning, Windows ran startup repair for about an hour, before telling me 'startup repair cannot repair this computer automatically' and the following problem signatures:

I then tried starting the computer in safe mode, and it let me, so I was able to back up my recent files (phew!). Then I tried starting it normally, and it's working! But I'm afraid that this will happen again, and if it does, the problem won't be so easily solved. Does anybody have any suggestions as to what is going on, and is it directly related to overheating?

Yesterday while trying to fix a port issue to play a video game on my PC, I uninstalled Avast because a forum I was on suggested my firmware software could be causing the issue.

I was planning on launching the game when my computer crashed and gave the the repair Windows window. It is now in a constant loop of starting and shutting down and the ONLY window I get is the same repair window which doesn't find anything.

I looked this problem up and found the post by Lethorio in 2013 and he had the EXACT issue. I followed the post until the very end did everything that was suggested but nada.

In MY case...I uninstalled Avast already so I had no files to delete in the config or drivers file in the registry.

I do not have an optical drive unit nor a Windows 7 disk.

I'm begging for help at this point.
Thank you

Sounds like you need to get to a cmd prompt and run chkdsk /r on your hard drive. If you pass the startup repair in "Repair Your Computer" environment cmd will be one of the later choices.

For context my manager was trying to revert to windows 7 from 10. The PC tried startup repair, didn't work so I put a fresh Win 7 ISO on a USB and booted from that in the hopes the repair would work.

Also tried a simple system restore but there are no usable restore points it seems.

Any help greatly appreciated as this is the main business PC.

Hello,
 
I'm trying to trouble shoot a computer running Windows 7 on bootcamp on a 2011 27" iMac.
 
The computer constantly boots into Windows 7 Startup Repair, but it constantly says "Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically."  The same thing happens if I try to boot into any Safe Mode option.  There are no restore points (uggg).
 
Here's the info from running diskpart from the command prompt:
 
Volume 0 D - DVD ROM
Volume 1 C BOOTCAMP NTFS Partition 902 GB Healthy
Volume 2 E No label/No Fs Removable 0B No Media
 
Any suggestions?

I have to say I am not sure if this is a Windows problem or a Mac one. If this was a Windows computer I would suggest creating a Windows repair disk, but I am not sure if that would work in this situation. On top of that I know very little about Macs, but Bootcamp is a type of VM ?
 
If that is the case you may have to uninstall and re-install windows.
